The Badgers will host the No. 25 Iowa Hawkeyes on Saturday. Iowa is a 12.5-point road underdog after defeating Ohio State 55–24 at home on Saturday.
The Pac-12 North is still wide open heading into this week's action of No. 9 Washington (-6.5) at Stanford on Friday and No. 19 Washington State (-1) at Utah. Stanford is 7–0 ATS in its last seven games coming off of a loss as a betting favorite.
The picture is much clearer in the Pac-12 South. With head-to-head tie-breakers over Arizona and Arizona State, the No. 15 USC Trojans can clinch the Pac-12 South with a win Saturday as 13.5-point road favorites over Colorado.
